Response: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

The FAO is one of the most important UN bodies. Its original goals remain as relevant today as they were upon the organizations founding. The FAO provides essential services to all countries, all forms of agriculture, and should play an active role in advancing agriculture and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Working in close collaboration with the International Fertilizer Association, the International Plant Nutrition Institute, regional fertilizer associations, fertilizer companies, agri-business, development agencies, government agencies, environmental groups and farm organizations, the global fertilizer industry is helping to shape agricultural advancement by improving the way farmers deliver essential nutrients to crops with the 4R Nutrient Stewardship framework.
